Year 3 – Keep your eyes peeled for The Iron Man

Strange things have been spotted by Year 3. Whilst on a nice walk on Monday for some fresh air, Year 3 noticed some objects hanging in the trees and bushes. At first they thought Mr Blake and Mrs Barbour had been a little lazy and not put these in the bin where they should be. But it seems that Mr Blake had lost some of his things over half term. Year 3 turned on their thinking brains and started to work on the case at once.

The children worked out that all the objects were made of metal. When they arrived back in school they discovered a book all wrapped up in boring brown paper with the words: Don’t judge a book by its cover. The children guessed that this book was ‘The Iron Man’ and went on to design their own front covers. We explained that ‘The Iron Man’ book has had many different front covers and the were very excited to find out which copy they had (don’t forget if your child would like to keep their copy of the Iron Man once the project is complete, you can buy this using your SCOPAY account for just £3.99). 

blankblankblankblankblank

Once the children opened their books, they came to the conclusion that ‘The Iron Man’ must be have been at school and needed metal for something. So do keep your eyes peeled for any more evidence! On Tuesday, when the children arrived in their classes they were surprised to see the Iron Man on their walls. They used many words to describe him: colossal, gigantic, titanic, enormous, immense, Vast and many more.

The children have shown a great attitude to their new new project and we are sure they are going to enjoy it!

 

A few reminders: 
* Homework can be found on google classroom and is set on Friday’s. 
* Isolating lessons can be found in Year 3 folder on google classroom and are only for those children self isolating that are well enough to complete.
* You can buy a copy of The Iron Man by paying on your SCOPAY account. 
* The children will be requiring a shoe box lid (or cereal box) in school named ASAP – this is for a D&T project but because these need to go into isolation before use, we are asking for them to be in by Friday 20th November at the latest.

Maths

Today, we are continuing our work on Fractions using the White Rose Maths Lessons. This will involve watching the video clip and completing the worksheet.  There is an answer sheet to check your work. 

Please complete Summer Term Week 1 Lesson 4 – Ordering Fractions – This lesson builds on your knowledge from yesterday’s work on comparing fractions.  Today you will use bar models to help you order fractions from smallest to largest.

You can find the video and resources for today’s lesson here https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/ 

Make sure you click on Summer Term week 1, Lesson 4 Watch the clip and follow the instructions.

Things to remember

  • Bar models must be the same size when comparing.
  • You can use a fraction wall to help when the numerator and denominator are different numbers.
  • Remember when the denominators the same, the greater the numerator, the greater the fraction e.g. 7/10 is greater than 3/10 because the numerator 7 is greater than 3.
  • When the denominators are the same, the smaller the numerator, the smaller the fraction e.g. 3/8 is less than 5/8 because the numerator 3 is less than 5.
  • When the numerators are the same, the smaller the denominator the greater the fraction e.g. 3/5 is greater than 3/8 because the denominator 5 is less than 8 meaning the whole hasn’t been split into so many pieces.
  • Question 7 is a challenge question. For Dexter’s method will need to make each of the numerators 4. Think what you need to x the numerator by to make 4 and then times the denominator by that too.  You can now order the fractions.  For Alex’s method you will need to make each of the denominators 105 so you will need to work out what you need to times the denominator by to make 105 and times the numerator by that too (you can ask an adult to work through this question with you)

Resources you will need: 
Please remember if you don’t have a printer you can copy into your maths book or onto paper. Try and complete as best as you can. 

Don’t forget Miss Goddard’s challenges: click here.

When you have finished use the answer sheet to mark your work.

Year 3 – Wednesday 29th April

Bonjour Year 3

Thank you for your hard work! We have loved seeing your French activities from yesterday.

We are really looking forward to our zoom chats tomorrow and to see all your smiling faces. Please email us if you haven’t received the details – this would of been sent through school office email.

Zoom can be used for many things during this time. My children use it for their reading sessions to their Nan – they have now on their forth book! It not only means that they are reading daily, it means their Nan has something to look forward to each day. Maybe you could use this to keep in contact with your other friends and family. We have heard about some children having family quizzes and having virtual sleepovers, this is brilliant!


We are so proud of you all and you are all showing all of our learning behaviours. You are all brilliant superstars being role models for St Mark’s.

Happy Wednesday!

 

Maths

Today, we are continuing our work on Fractions using the White Rose Maths Lessons. This will involve watching the video clip and completing the worksheet.  There is an answer sheet to check your work. 

Please complete Summer Term Week 1 Lesson 3 – Comparing Fractions – This lesson builds on your knowledge from yesterday’s work on equivalent fractions.  Today you use bar models to help you compare fractions using the greater than and less than signs.

You can find the video and resources for today’s lesson here https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/

Things to remember:

  • Bar models must be the same size when comparing.
  • Remember when the denominators the same, the greater the numerator, the greater the fraction e.g. 7/10 is greater than 3/10 because the numerator 7 is greater than 3.
  • When the denominators are the same, the smaller the numerator, the smaller the fraction e.g. 3/8 is less than 5/8 because the numerator 3 is less than 5.
  • When the numerators are the same, the smaller the denominator the greater the fraction e.g. 3/5 is greater than 3/8 because the denominator 5 is less than 8 meaning the whole hasn’t been split into so many pieces.
